?Que onda?

HI 62 / LO 42,  morning sunshine


Back in college, I spent a month in Campeche, Mexico, on the Gulf. The standard greeting I heard every day was, ?Que onda? Literally, it means, What wave? What wave has come to you today? or What are the waves bringing you today?

Guess where I’m going? No, not Campeche, but we are headed to the beach on the Texas side of the Gulf of Mexico. I’m going to a place I haven’t been in 24 years, but one I went to very often when I was growing up.

When I come back, I’ll let you know what the waves brought me.

P.S. I’m over at Tweetspeak today, writing about wheat berries. It’s all L.L. Barkat’s fault.


  1. Have fun in the waves. Looking forward to hearing what they brought.

  2. It’s always her fault. I blame her for a lot of stuff. )

  3. Good waves to you!
